ABOUT THE TOUR
Our private tour aims to facilitate groups of people with more specific needs – whether it is large groups of people, families on a short layover stop, or corporate clients looking to help with team bonding – we can help build a customised tour to suit you. Private tours are a must for groups of 7 or more people and tend to incorporate groups of up to 20 people, although we are always able to accommodate you.
Why go private? Our private tours enable you to discover the city at your own pace and enjoy those unique spots for a moment longer – going private means you are in control of the duration. Also, we never want the language to be a barrier to anyone enjoying Frankfurt, that is why we provide multilingual tours in 7 languages: English, Español, Deutsch, Português, Italiano, Polski, and عربي.
See below for an example tour itinerary that includes many of the popular destinations that we venture through.

Frankfurt is actually famous for its Apfelwein – or Apple cider wine – not beer, like our Bavarian brothers.
Where should we stay in Frankfurt?
How do we get to Frankfurt from the airport?
Depending on your mode of transport, the journey from the airport takes 20-40 minutes.
The route from the airport to the city center is served by two electric train lines – S8 and S9 – and you can take one running to Hanau or Offenbach Ost. Both the Frankfurt Airport train and shuttle are available 24/7, and you can always take a taxi.
Please be aware this is just a sample of some of the place we can visit. A private tour gives you the flexibility to see what you want to see, or you can leave the itinerary up to your experienced guide.
